By Jessie Hartland

The sphinx of the pharaoh Hatshepsut is a jewel of the Museums Egyptian art collection. As riveting as the artifact itself is equally compelling the story of how it made its way to the Museum after being discovered smashed to bits and buried in a pit for thousands of years. Acclaimed illustrator and author Jessie Hartland traces this fascinating journey from its carving in ancient Egypt to its installation in the Museum. This is essential reading for all young Egyptologists.

Ages 6 and older. 40 pages, full-color illustrations throughout. 11'' x 9''. Hardcover.
